The prep for this pattern activity was really quick and simple. I printed the cards and cut them apart.
Then, I grabbed a pack of rainbow popsicle sticks I’d picked up at the Dollar Store and invited the boys over to join me.
Popsicle Stick Pattern Activity
I included a variety of different patterns so there would be options for kiddos who were beginners and those who were more experienced.
Middle Brother (age 3) started with an AB pattern: yellow, green, yellow, green. He said the colors on the card out loud and then started laying down the next sticks in the pattern.
When he finished, he worked on another AB pattern, some AABB and ABB patterns, and then tried the mammoth rainbow card: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.
It’s a whopper, but he was able to tackle it. And he was oh-so-proud when he finished!!
